No don’t worry, you won’t be adding any broken crayons to this dish but for my daughter apparently she thought this version would taste better. She whipped up a batch of Chaat Masala Chickpeas with broken crayons.
Notice the crayons still with their wrappings? Yes, well, I heard they taste better and gives the dish enough texture. Oh yes, uncooked chickpeas seem the way to go for toddlers these days. Yum.
So I promised a recipe. Well here it is, but be warned it is my version of chaat masala chickpeas. And for sure, they are better than my daughter’s way of making it.
You can adjust the measurements to your liking and add other things if you prefer. I love that it is healthy, no cooking required (if your using cans), flavorful, very filling for the belly, and satisfying to the tastebuds.
